I Will Blog Again

but sheesh just not right now.

There are 7 kids in this house.

Funny thing about that.
When the  kids aren't in school all day your house becomes well...
a whole lotta work to keep up with.

And here's the thing,
they all expect me to feed them
and entertain them
and clean up after them
and drive them here
and there
and over there
all while stopping at Sonic for happy hour.

And oddly..
are you ready for this groundbreaking news?

Now that school is out and they are back from camp
they are home

What the?

So in place of my blogging time I am unloading the dishwasher for the 14th time today.
Or searching for lost swim trunks because they cannot for the life of them put them back where they go after we get home from the beach or the pool, or the sprinkler outside. 
And I'm doing about 800% more laundry than normal. 
and there's the good stuff too.
Turns out these kids...
all 7 of them...
are pretty stinkin fun to hang out with.

This is my first summer with 7.
My first summer really with the 3 latest additions since I don't really count last summer what with the move and all.


Alrighty then.
I can do this.
I can do this.
I can
hire a maid
and a chef
and a taxi
and a nanny
and someone to rub my feet
and tell me I'm beautiful even though I haven't showered in 2 days....unless you count the pool....which you shouldn't.....cuz that's gross...just don't tell anyone I haven't showered in two days.

I'm good.

Blogging to resume Fall of 3024.
See you then. 


  1. NNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    What will I do without you????!!!!!

    Did you call and get your name on the list?
    Better do it.
    Can't do it without you next year.
    Just sayin'.

    1. John and I talked about it, {rather he talked....I whined and pleaded} :) but we are going to have to wait until we move closer to it since the logistics of getting 9 of us way up there is a little nuts. Boo. Boo. Hoo.

    2. : (
      Well then, pack up and move closer!!

      I guess I'll have to come there and then a few of us can have our own MAMA vacation of our own!
      How does that sound?
      : )

  2. not even a quick funny happy little post???
    I thought i'd take the summer off too...
    but, things are starting to get interesting again.

    the big dreaded jaw surgery just became my "back burner" issue.
    Ethiopia ready or not.

    I'll keep checkin you every now and then.
    blessings sister~

  3. Oh PLEASE blog again because I cannot live without YOU!

    Don't L.E.A.V.E M.E.!!!

    Besides I love the little ones on your side bar!

  4. I've only got five at home this summer, but can SOOOOO relate to your hilarious post! I keep wondering what happened to the "lazy days of summer"?
    What the?
    Love & Blessings,

  5. NOOOO!!!!
    PLEASE Say it aint so!!
    We NEED your pearls of wisdom and hilarity!
    We promise not send notes asking where you are or make you feel guilty for not blogging ;)
    Just throw us a bone every once in awhile!!!!
    Shoot, If I lived closer I'd come over and do your laundry so you have time for us ;) Sheri
